Mortal Kombat 11 players will get free currency to deal with Towers of Time

The first of two patches aimed at tuning the difficulty in Towers of Time has rolled out, with the second to follow this week.

Mortal Kombat 11 is a pretty solid fighting game, but players have found certain aspects of it frustrating. Specifically, the Towers of Time mode is punishingly difficult, and without using some of the game’s consumables, it’s nigh impossible to clear certain towers. The problem is, Mortal Kombat 11 is pretty stingy when it comes to doling out its several in-game currencies. Fortunately, NetherRealm has fixes on the way, and in the meantime, players will be receiving some free currency “to help you along your way.”

All Mortal Kombat 11 players are getting 500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Soul Fragments, and 1,000 Time Krystals. Koins and Hearts are used to open reward chests in the Krypt, Soul Fragments can be used to open secret areas and obtain special items, and Time Krystals are used to purchase new skins and cosmetics. These are available to buy with real-world money in the premium shop, and new skins cost 500 Time Krystals a piece.

On PC, NetherRealm has deployed the first of a pair of patches, which includes some tuning to the difficulty level of the Towers of Time. The developer says more tuning is planned in the next patch as well, and the most difficult modifiers in the mode are getting nerfed, both in terms of how frequently they show up and in how hard they hit.

That second patch should be rolling out sometime this week, and it’ll also include fixes to make the AI less difficult and provide more rewards in Towers of Time.

“We’re aware of the difficulty issues in Towers of Time, and while we’ve made some changes, rest assured there are more on the way,” NetherRealm wrote in a post to the Mortal Kombat 11 subreddit.

Hopefully the changes will help take the hard edge off of Mortal Kombat 11’s progression grind.
